Anderson will start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game against the Rangers, per the Ottawa Citizen.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson has been struggling for nearly a month, suffering seven consecutive defeats while posting a sub-par 3.29 GAA and .896 save percentage in nine appearances. However, it's hard to put the blame squarely on the veteran netminder's shoulders, as he's been hung out too dry far too often by his teammates during the Senators' losing streak. The American backstop will look to right the ship and pick up his eighth victory of the campaign Wednesday in a tough home matchup with a Rangers team that's averaging 3.20 goals per game on the road this season, fourth in the NHL.

Anderson stopped 45 of 50 shots in Saturday's loss to the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

It's easy to point the finger at Anderson for the loss, but the Senators were outshot 50-25 and really didn't do much to help their netminder. The veteran has had a tough go this year, managing a 7-10-3 record with a .895 save percentage. He's turned in a few strong outings, but until things improve for Ottawa, it's probably best to shy away from Anderson in most fantasy settings.

Anderson was designated as Saturday's road starter versus the Sharks, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

At least when it comes to peripheral stats, December has been the worst month of Anderson's playing career, as he's maintained a 2.97 GAA and .907 save percentage in 88 games played during the final month of the calendar year. The American backstop hasn't won since shutting out the Avalanche -- his former team -- at the home rink Nov. 11, a span of eight games. He'll attempt to right the ship against Team Teal, which is ranked 29th in the league for scoring and 27th in shooting percentage.

Anderson made 19 saves on 21 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Ducks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

That's seven appearances in a row without a win for Anderson. He's also still posting a GAA above 3.00 and a save percentage below .900. While the veteran American netminder has not had a season like this since 2013-14 (3.00 GAA, .911 save percentage), the longer Anderson struggles, the harder it becomes to believe he'll turn it around.

Anderson will guard the goal in Wednesday's road game against the Ducks, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson has been struggling for several weeks, compiling an 0-5-0 record while registering a sub-par 3.20 GAA and .893 save percentage in seven appearances. The veteran goaltender will look to get back on track Wednesday in a road matchup with a Ducks team that's only averaging 2.60 goals per game at home this season, 26th in the NHL.

Anderson stopped all 27 shots he faced in relief of Mike Condon on Sunday against Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson was pulled against the Islanders on Friday and now Condon is struggling in the cage too. The Senators have lost eight of their last nine games and neither goalie makes for an appealing fantasy option right now. Anderson owns a lacking 7-8- record with a .895 save percentage and should be avoided until the Senators get things back on track.

Anderson made just 13 saves on 18 shots in two periods of a 6-5 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The fact that Anderson was on the winning side and got chased gives an idea of how little defense was played in this game. Anderson has had a below-average to poor season so far with a save percentage of .889, and it's easy to see him ceding starts to Mike Condon if he doesn't bounce back.

Anderson will be the starting netminder for Friday's game against the Islanders, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

Friday will be Anderson's second consecutive start against the Isles, having lost the first matchup 2-1 on Saturday. The Sens are currently on a seven-game losing streak and Anderson is on a five-game skid of his own, so both parties will be hoping to get off the schneid Friday, though it could be quite a challenge. The Islanders lead the league with 3.67 goals scored per game and have come out victorious in seven of their last eight contests.

Anderson made 22 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson hasn't won since Nov.11, a span of five starts. His teammates have only scored six goals in those five, so it's hard to fault Anderson.

Anderson will start between the pipes in Saturday's home game against the Islanders, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move comes as a bit of a surprise, as Anderson was just in goal for Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets, so it seemed as though Mike Condon would likely get the nod for Saturday's match. Instead, Anderson will look to snap a personal four-game losing streak in a home matchup with an Islanders team that's averaging 3.08 goals per game on the road this season, eighth in the NHL.
